2020 May IWSG

May 6 question - Do you have any rituals that you use when you need help getting into the ZONE? Care to share? 

Well, I rarely have these moments. I can usually write about anything. That’s not to say I don’t have writers’ block. But I rarely have a problem with that. I think a lot of writers and editors and musicians can relate we’re not necessarily extroverts. 



That being said, I’ve adapted to be “In The Zone” at any given time. Often I cannot pick and choose my spots. I need to look for opportunities to write even if it’s a series of 15 - 60 blocks of writing time. At the end of the week I’ll add up the time I spent researching and writing and only then will it become recognizable that I accomplished something significant. 

Question Do you look at what you are currently writing to feel good that you accomplished something or do you look at the overall picture to feel you reached a milestone?

Be sure to stop by their sites and give them some love for all their hard work this month! 


Oh BTW if you're wondering why my links are pink rather than the standard blue, it's because I first started doing this for Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Race for the Cure waaaaayyyy back in the day. I've never changed back.

December 4 question Let's play a game. Imagine. Role-play. How would you describe your future writer self, your life and what it looks and feels like if you were living the dream? Or if you are already there, what does it look and feel like? Tell the rest of us. What would you change or improve? 



Future me? Oh, I dunno know. Probably what I’m doing now. Sitting on the couch with my best bud Bender, drinking beer and binge watching Netflix.

Question Do you have a BFF robot? With advances in robotics where it is today would you if you could?

November Question What's the strangest thing you've ever googled in researching a story? 



For me, researching advanced pre-Adamic civilizations who actually built the great structures like the pyramids across the world. I did not believe in them at the time, but through my research I am now a believer. 

There were advanced civilizations before Adam and Eve six or seven thousand years ago that built these great structures. These civilizations, and possibly others before them, dies out for whatever reasons leaving little or no trace of their existence except for the great pyramids and other pyramids across the globe, the sphinx, the Kailasa Temple and so much more. 

Kailasa Temple 

Civilizations like the ancient Egyptians simply moved in, took over, and the kings claimed they built the structures. The evidence is more than quite compelling.



In Genesis God told Adam and Eve to repopulate the earth. Must have been people here before them like Keith Richards.

Genesis 1:28
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

Genesis 9:1
“And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

Question Do you think there have been advanced civilizations before our recorded history of about six thousand years?

October 2 Question It's been said that the benefits of becoming a writer who does not read is that all your ideas are new and original. Everything you do is an extension of yourself, instead of a mixture of you and another author. On the other hand, how can you expect other people to want your writing, if you don't enjoy reading? What are your thoughts? 

I don’t see how one can develop the necessary character arcs of multiple personalities let alone create settings especially in a mythical world if they are not healthy readers. 

The Ultimate Game of Jenga

The best books I’ve read all come from writers who are voracious readers. This is true for fiction and non-fiction. 

Unless the writer uses a ghost writer. And I don’t read many of those books. 


Question Fall is officially here. Any special plans for a spooky October?
